Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Vickie. I grew up in Swannanoa, N.C. and now I live in Asheville. I enjoy researching family history and walking through cemeteries to read stones. Everyone deserves to be remembered. Someone somewhere loved them. Thanks to the great contributors here at Find a Grave, I have been able to see the graves of many family members that I would have never seen if it wasn't for their generosity. It is so nice to be able to visit a loved one's grave and not even leave the house.

If any of my memorials contain errors, or if you have information to add, please send me a message or an edit. All memorials are done with the utmost respect of those who have passed on and those of us left behind.

When my soul is restless
And things seem out of line,
I visit an old graveyard
To take a mystical step back in time.

I find the oldest tombstones
Then read the messages there;
I consider what their days had been
And how our lives in ways compare.

We all have lived though heartaches
As well as episodes of fun;
Surviving loss of loved ones,
And rewarded for a job well done.

Sometimes if I'm very still
I can hear what they have to say
And feel them reaching out to me
Grateful for my momentary stay.

RE: John Oates
Thanks, Vickie. I thought that since you were both from the same area, you might be related. Thanks for replying.

John Oates
Hi Vickie,
I have been searching the web for an old Air Force buddy named John Oates. He was from Ashville and was one year younger than me which would make his birth year 1951.I saw the find a grave posting of your relative with similar statistics. I was wondering if this could be the John Oates I knew. I served with him in the USAFSS in San Antonio and he transferred to England (I believe Chicksands) about the time I separated from the Air Force. Lost contact many years ago. I hope this is not him, but would want to know if it is. Could you shed any light on this. I do remember he had attended Western Carolina University. Used to kid about that since I went to Western Kentucky University. Thanks in advance for any help.

Vicki, I appreciate your looking into this. I wasn't refering to Frances, but her Mother Hazel. They have her name listed as Hazel Julia Seamon twice, but it is Hazel Julian Seamon. Julian was her maiden name and Elizabeth was her middle name. She was my great-aunt. Please refer to memorial # 37019858. Thank you. Michele
